obama during this debate and loses his cool. that's just who the guy is, i think. susan, did governor chris christie think he was helping mitt romney by saying that the debate would just be turning this race upside down? what do you think? >> i think chris christie was just being chris christie. while you're correct, a lot of people were dampening expectations, chris said what a lot of people are hoping and thinking. mitt romney delivers a vision with some specifics that people can grab on to and can turn this race around. the fact is things flip-flopped very, very quickly in the last two or three weeks. they can go back the other way. only if romney performs well. >> chris kofinis, do you believe that romney can turn this around as many months as he's had, one misstep after another, and by a wide margin, americans think president obama is going to win this debate and has the upper hand. what about expectations and what about the possibility of romney turning this around? what do you think? >> well, that's clearly their strategy. you have to love governor christie for raising expectat
a punch, but can you take it? and that's what's going to be a challenge to president obama and governor romney. will romney be able to get underneath president obama's skin? will president obama really put governor romney in a place where he can't come out of? can he box him in? i don't think it's going to be who delivers the zingers but who takes the punches better. >> chris, final lip, the demeanor of mitt romney. what are we going to see? during the primary debates, we saw him lose his cool a couple times. we saw him get a little emotional. as you said earlier, just a moment ago, he'll stick his foot in his mouth. but isn't demeanor and presidential attitude and presentation going to be so much more important in this it debate than a republican primary debate? your thoughts on that? >> absolutely. if you look back at the history of presidential debates it's not just something that the candidate says that matters. it's also what they do. everyone remembers that infamous moment where president bush sr. looked at his watch during the town hall debate and defined who e he was. and so for
president obama with a slight lead over governor mitt romney. as history shows the late september leads doesn't mean a win in november. mike emanuel explains. >> polls go up and down. >> history shows that late september leads can evaporate by election day. in 1968 hubert humphrey was down 15 points. nixon won it was less than 1 percent. in 1976, jimmy carter had a 33-point lead over gerald ford. three debates, ford had cut the lead to 5 points and led in the final polls and narrowly lost. jamie carter had a consistent advantage over ronald reagan but the final presidential debate changed everything leading to a reagan landslide. now he is building a lead in key battleground states, a consultant who worked for jimmy carter, finding the right sample to survey can be tricky. >> we know from exit polls that republicans tend to respond to these polls less than oftentimes particularly to news organizations less than do democrats. >> reporter: in. >> julie: 8 there was a huge swing. dukakis lost to bush. in 1992 incumbent president was down nine points in mid-september and was tied with bill
. the polls are very close. our latest fox news poll shows president obama leading governor romney by 5 points. but will wednesday's showdown be a game changer? we have a panel here. thank you for joining us. >> good to be here. >> we talked about the fact that the campaigns, both sides have been managing expectations. i want to ask you, governor christie was pretty bold this morning, saying it will turn the race upside down and romney will come out of the gate, charging. that's the first person we have heard saying, he will do a great job? what do you make about if? >> i wonder if he will get a call from boston. that's not what the romney campaign or the obama campaign has been doing. if anything, they have been saying nice things about their opponent. this is one of the only times you will she happen. have you president obama saying mitt romney is an experienced debater. he has been through this many times. and romney's campaign is saying obama gione of the best speakers to walk the earth, ever. >> we talked about this earlier, talking about biden's sharp special witty. even the number twos
distinction between his policies and those of president obama. listen. >> what does governor romney need to do wednesday night in that first debate? >> he needs to give american people the choice we are offering. that is what we are doing. we owe the country a very clear choice of a different future. we can either have a dynamic growing economy that produces opportunity or we can have a stagnant economy that fosters dependency. we can stick with failed policies for the next four years or brighter future. dependency versus opportunity versus upper mobility. >> heather: let's bring alex us any gill johnson and nancy, president of media speak strategies and former senior advisor spokesperson to john mccain. thank you for joug us. nancy i want to begin with you. for six months they said this campaign is a referendum on president obama's record. now you heard paul ryan saying in his interview with chris that it's about choice. do you see this as a shift in strategy for the romney campaign and if so, is that why? >> i think it's right and proper for both candidates to offer americans a clear vision
're governor rom any, he did very well in the debates and i think president obama is a good debater, not a great debater, to be frank about it. but the expectations game and the reality of what he has to accomplish is he has to go out there and change minds. and he has to do it when the fact is, when this is republicans ignored. they know him. they don't like his policies. >> go ahead, joe. >> i think that chris makes a great point. the 1980, ronald reagan really changed the course of the debate and helped himself by saying to americans, think back, are you better off today than you were four years ago, is it easier to get a job, are there fewer of you that are unemployed and by getting the american folks to concentrate on that as opposed to how much they like president carter really helped. >> that's a variation of the question that the romney campaign has been asking for several months and the results that they're getting based on the polling is not the answer that the romney campaign wants. >> well style matters in the debate. think about ronald reagan. jimmy carter had a lot of
are counting down to the first presidential faceoff. president obama, governor mitt romney cramming for their first debate tomorrow night in denver. and new questions about whether the president's health care law could soon be back before the u.s. supreme court. judge andrew napolitano weighs in. >>> and jaw-dropping pictures you won't want to miss. wait until you see what cameras caught when discovery tv intentionally crashed a 727 jet liner in an investigation, where's the safest place for you to sit when you fly? we're going to show you, all "happening now." gregg: hello, everybody, i'm gregg jarrett in for jon scott. jenna: hi, everybody, i'm jenna lee. brand new polling out today giving us a snapshot of how the race for the white house is shaping up on the 'of the first -- on the eve of the first presidential debate. the latest quinnipiac poll showing the president leading among likely voters, and that matters. [laughter] take a look at this poll, this same poll shows a much wider gap among women voters. the president holding a commanding lead, 56-38% among likely women voters
tightening their grip president obama leading governor romney by two points. 46% to 44%. that is within the margin of error. here is the policy average of all polls in virginia. the president of about four points. now some politics watchers are suggesting all of this discussion over polling and who is where, is ignoring a much larger story. the rise of the independent voters in this country. this could play into the next week's debate and election just five weeks from now. chris stirewalt is host of power-play on fox news.com. the rise of the independents. what do you mean? >> is something we have seen for 20 years, but accelerating in the last decade. republicans keep saying, don't pay attention to these polls. the democrats outnumber the republicans in these polls. that's not how it's going to be, that misses the larger truth. the number of republicans and democrats are both down. independents are up. independent voters continue to go up. people are not as tied to tight a partisan way that they used to be. certainly the long-standing affiliation, to keep people within a party, it is l
when president obama and governor romney go head to head a little more than 48 hours from right now. welcome to "america live," everyone, i'm megyn kelly. a new survey of likely voters finds that almost one in five say that they can still be swayed to vote for either candidate here. and some of those wavering voters say they are waiting for these debates to help them decide. the headline here according to bloomberg, about 18% of the electorate is, quote, persuadable, and that is a big number considering that early voting has already begun. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of "power play" on foxnews.com. so the campaigns have got to see that, in particular the romney camp, as good news, chris, since he is shown as trail anything a lot of these swing state polls as well. >> well, certainly it's not good news if you're president obama. if that's true, if you really have 18% persuadable voters, this comes after fife months -- five months of the most stained, negative attack, most personal barrage against a candidate by an incumbent president that we've ev
that president obama and republican governor scott walker have at least one thing in common, their disdain for the nfl lockout. a firestorm erupting on twitter after the controversial call after replacement refs awarded a touchdown to the seahawks in the final play on sunday night, both obama and walker tweeting for the lockout to end, and the new jersey senate president says he's going to introduce legislation because of course that's what you do against replacement refs altogether. peter barnes joins me now, i hear there's an end in sight. >> reporter: yeah, possibly. the leader of the nfl referees' association says it looks -- let me get it right -- it sure looks good for a deal with nfl owners, telling "usa today" this afternoon that negotiators have narrowed their differences and both sides are committed to getting it done but that there's no deal right now. now, the nfl declined to comment on an espn report that the owners and refs are close to an agreement in principle and that they're close enough that they have discussed refs returning to the field this sunday. the lockout is beco
of an overall competence challenge to mr. obama. if the economy remains bad and it does just check outearnings from ford and gm today, and america's overseas strategy is wobbling, which is seems to be, governor romney should have some heavy verbal ammunition to use in the debate tomorrow night. for his part, the president will remain steadfast that everything is going according to plan. >> four years ago i said i'd end the war in iraq, i did. i said we're going to wind down the war in afghanistan. we are. and while a twin tower -- while a new tower rises above the new york skyline, al-qaeda is on the path to defeat and osama bin laden is dead. >> bill: but according to the american commander in afghanistan, al-qaeda fighters are again causing trouble in that country and the terror group might even be responsible for murdering ambassador stevens. talking points believes many voters are still persuadable. that support for the president is thin among some independents. recent rasmussen poll says 42% of those backing the president are locked in stone. that gives the governor some room tomorrow nig
important, because president obama and governor romney have a very different views as to where they want to take our country internationally. host: the caller touched a little bit on iran. what are you expecting from this speech from the iranian leader today? guest:, ahmadinejad -- i think your viewers know who he is -- he is a fool. he regularly ponce and criticizes the united states, he tells lies about our country, he is in israel later, he denies the holocaust, he has had several -- he has said several times that israel ought to be wiped off the map. he has lost most of his power. he is not the most significant leader in iran. that is the supreme leader khamenei. i expect a lot of bombast, a lot of lies about the united states. frankly, he will be talking at the united nations. iran has a very little support. they have support from hezbollah, the terrorist group in lebanon, the syrian government, which is an outlaw government right now. but most countries and to the world want nothing to do with the iranians. they are under very tough international sanctions because they had been vio
, a trend that could give president obama an edge over governor mitt romney on election day if republican voters don't think they can close the gap. chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel reports now from washington. >> go up and down, we have plenty of time. >> history shows late september leads can evaporate by election day. in 1968, hub bert humphrey was down 15 points to richard nixon. while nixon won it was by less than 1%. in 1976, jimmy carter had a lead over gerald ford. after three debates, ford cut the lead to five points and led in the final gallup poll though narrowly lost. in 1980, carter maintained a consistent advantage over ronald reagan, but the final presidential debate changed everything leading to a reagan landslide. with polls now showing president obama building a lead over mitt romney in key battleground states, a democratic pollster and consultant who worked for jimmy carter says finding the right sample to survey can be tricky. >> we know from the exit polls and others, the republicans tend to respond to these polls less than oftentimes, particularly from
obama comes across as a slight silliness, as the you're likable enough, hillary, line. governor romney, when she prepared and on case, he can be quite effective and disciplined in saying here's what i want to do, here's why you're wrong, here's where i'm going to do a better job. where he gets into trouble is when something comes out of left field that he hasn't really prepared for. >> this is the moment that the challenger has some advantage because it's the first time you've seen him on the stage with the president. >> yes, historically, that's been the case, because when you think about it, a president never stands as an equal with another american citizen except during these debates, and for all that we read and psych out the race and say it may be opening up now, there still is this undeniable drama, seeing these people in the same room, face to face what are they going to do in 90 minutes? so the challenger often gets a boost just by being there. >> you went back and looked at some 30 hours of debates. i thought one of the most interesting points that you made was that you can ac
. that was the assumption that they made. that is like immediately the obama campaign ads. anything governor romney ever said would support the view that he is going to increase taxes, it is just a lie. the basic principle. everything governor romney has said, i will say it now, he knows that is true. if he is proposing a $5 trillion tax cut, you push a campaign that is consistent with everything governor romney has ever said. if you think that it doesn't add up and if he can't get to 28%, they would have a different change in rates. governor romney believes he can get to 28%. in office, he will try to do it. there is no way in hell that anybody believes he will increase taxes and i can't believe the obama campaign will say that. and an economist would be up here repeating the stupid and inane talking plants -- points. >> says when governor run it will cut income tax rates by 20% across the board, that is a lower priority promised? >> he has always said, always accepted by every respectable economists is that we needed revenue neutral reform. >> the accusation is that he said things that all of them can
place. >>> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. this morning president obama and governor mitt romney are preparing for tomorrow night's first debate in denver. a new national poll shows the president has a four-point advantage going into this head-to-head matchup. it will focus on the economy and domestic issues. jan crawford is in denver this morning. >> reporter: both romney and the president have no more big campaign events before tomorrow night's debate. last night romney had a rally before more than 5,000 people. he picked up the endorsement of broncos legend john elway. there are less than 10% of voters who say they're undecided, they could change their mind. romney's challenge is to show why his proposals will make their life better and why the president doesn't deserve another chance. there was an interesting group last week in ohio with voters who packed the president in 2008 but aren't sold this time. it shows some think the president isn't to blame for the economy. they also don't know much good about romney thanks to the negative ads romney's camp
and election. both president obama and governor romney are seasoned debaters. but if there is one thing that history has taught us when it comes to presidential debates, expect the unexpected. anderson cooper, cnn. >> don't forget if you catch all the debate action right here on cnf. coverage starts at 7:00 p.m. eastern. talk about second chances. he was hit in the head in his first major league at bat. now seven years later he'll step up to the plate again. don't forget you can watch cnn live at the computer while at work or cnn.com/tv. our abundant natural gas is already saving us money, producing cleaner electricity, putting us to work here in america and supporting wind and solar. though all energy development comes with some risk, we're committed to safely and responsibly producing natural gas. it's not a dream. america's natural gas... putting us in control of our energy future, now. on gasoline. i am probably going to the gas station about once a month. last time i was at a gas station was about...i would say... two months ago. i very rarely put gas in my chevy volt. i go to the
of the united states. governor romney has pledged to do that. barack obama will not do that. if we want to look at the deficit, everybody knows the problem with the deficit. who do we think is more likely to deal with the deficit? someone who has run it up over a trillion dollars every year he has been in office? is that too is going to do it to? or do we think governor romney, a businessman who is committed to fiscal responsibility is going to do it? who is going to do it to? if the barack obama is in the white house four years from now, he will have appointed one half of all federal judges and he will have changed the complexion of the added states supreme court for decades. can we stand that in this country? is that what we want to? no. foreign affairs. the president of the united states went to new york today, yesterday. other presidents have gone to meet with world leaders to sit down with the israelis and other allies, people who he needs to understand. and interesting article this morning about his failure to do that. he went to new york not to meet with world leaders, he is on "the view
and make people wonder in the middle east about president obama's judgment? >> governor romney said he would support democratic values. on another hand saying he would basically fund candidates to win that are friendly to the united states. how is that espousing democratic values? isn't it a little inconsistence there? >> not at all. first of all, take a look what was going on in egypt and realize not netly democratic values espoused. if i see the islamic brotherhood, i don't tear what face they're puts on, i've studied this and investigated and prosecuted for 35 years. you tell me the islamic brothers have changed their stripes? you're too naive to the protecting the united states of america. >> the muslim brotherhood. >> yeah. we didn't look behind this enough. we didn't look behind wa we were creating. it doesn't mean it wasn't going to happen, were ut it should have happened much more gradually. exactly what jimmy carter did in iran. >> sdts that estimate how much influence we actually had? his bus was leaving the station in egypt. mubarak was on his way out. hillary clinton and ot
-- closest governor races in the country. live on c-span 2 at 10:00 p.m. eastern. president obama and mitt romney are preparing for their first debate. we examine their this hour-long program begins with an update from wall street journal correspondent. >> laura meckler, as we look at the first of three presidential debates, this one taking place on the campus of the university of denver, this has been the debate season of expectation by the obama and romney campaign. what has happened? >> the expectations are being set on two different levels. you have the obama and ronnie campaigns talking about how great the other guy is. the people in the obama camp cannot stop praising mitt romney. they do not like him in any other way. they think he is a brilliant debater. same on romney's side. they talk about how obama is a debate champion. and how he has set the standard. what they are trying to do is lower expectations for their own performance and talk about their own flaws a bit and raise expectations for the other guy hoping that we will judge the debate itself with that in mind. there is anot
to see those rolled out. what questions do you think governor romney and president obama will not be asked in the debates? what questions do you think they should be asked. we would love to know your thoughts. you can call us anytime this morning at 866-55-press. that's 866-55-press. i am assisted as always by the great, brilliant alpha and omega, the oar text. >> wow. that was mighty kind of you sir. >> nice to know someone is really flying this ship. we have a lot to talk about. i am happy to fling that i will be covering this debate along with former vice president al gore eliot splitser and jennifer granholm as well as the young turks. >> that's what people should be watching. >> they should be, because it's pretty entertaining. you will get to see the full debate, also your tweets on the side of the screen, so commentary and the debate at the same time. that's going to be a lot of fun. paul ryan making an awkward appearance with chris wallace yesterday on fox news. the path to reelection clear for barack obama. according to the sorted press he's very close to the ele
-to-life. she voted for awful obama's big spending. so the contrast, i think aiken in fact if you are in any way a moderate or conservative he's closer to your values she is. >> bill: the state of the race for governor romney, how is he doing? >> he's got to become more aggressive, become clear, and stick to issues in a firm way. they've allowed the national media to define this campaign for 2 1/2 weeks, and that is an enormous disadvantage if you're a republican. i mean, republicans in the general election have to wake up every morning and say, okay, the obama team includes virtually every reporter i'm going to meet. and you've got to campaign in that context. so you've got to be so clear and so consistent that you reach beyond them. if you don't do that, you'll stay in permanent trouble. >> bill: many people look at debate as being probably the linchpin for this race. do you agree? >> yes. i think in the first debate -- my newsletter at human events coming out tomorrow will walk through this. i think at the first debate, romney has to come across as capable of being president, as a legitimate
of litigation. >> steve: glenn has written us. here is what he would like asked. president obama said he was going to use a scalpel to reduce the budget. what happened? how will governor romney attack the budget? >> gretchen: and from shirley, cutting the military at a time where we need to be strong and have respect as a military power against our enemies who burn our flag and kill our diplomats. that's interesting, shirley, because this debate will be about economic issues and many other things domestic. but would an interesting strategy be for mitt romney to try and bring in sort of these foreign policy arguments because they've been on the front burner for the last couple of weeks. is there a way to bring that into his advantage tomorrow night. >> steve: even though -- >> gretchen: even though it's not supposed to be. >> brian: here is the question i would like, mitt romney, how would you -- if bill clinton couldn't have turned this economy around in four years, even he couldn't turn it around in four years what, could you have done to turn it around in four years? see if he comes ba
